One thing when players train to get better that is often looked over and not closely evaluated is what they are eating. When it comes to training, shedding a couple extra pounds etc. the battle is not won in the weight room, but rather the kitchen. An example of this would be if your post workout meal includes a big Mac, you probably are not helping yourself.
The first thing you need to look at is are you eating breakfast? If not you really should start to. This is the most important meal of the day as it gets the metabolism moving and the whole digestive track running. Even something quick is better than nothing. Here are some examples of a good quick breakfast: Oatmeal, get your day startoff with some fiber! Or try a slice of toasted wheat bread with peanut butter and a banana sliced up on top. Or maybe a smoothie? A Smoothie made of milk, non flavored fat free yogurt, and what ever fruit you want can also be a good healthy way to start any day and taste great!
Other good foods to eat for breakfast or any other meals are Vegetables and fruits. Some really good vegetables are spinach, peppers, and onions. Fruit wise bananas are always a must for athletes and pineapple which helps with muscle recovery and recovering from lactic acid build up.
Lastly, remember you are what you eat, eat healthy, practice, and you will notice improvements in you game and health in just a couple weeks.
